Celluloid Bobbin Tatting Shuttle

Dave cut and carved this approx 2 1/4 inch Royal Blue celluloid bobbin tatting shuttle to bring out the beautiful patterns within. No two can come out the same. Change the angle of the light and you get dark and pearly blues accented with a threading design through the shuttle. The bobbin is a common Singer which can be bought in packs of 4 at Walmart or similar store with sewing supplies. The drag on the bobbin can be adjusted with the brass screw axle to keep it from free wheeling. It has a #14 steel picot hook inset in the nose.

It is initialed and dated by Dave, the maker.
